Healthy Aging is brought to you by the Billerica Public Library.
This program presents the latest research on the physiology of aging and longevity enhancement by exploring four areas of the world where people live the longest (Blue Zones). Learn how specific lifestyle changes can biologically slow down the aging process. Explore the role of genetics in aging and how lifestyle choices affect the expression of our genes. Discover how to create a plan or “roadmap” that will incorporate this important research and protect your most important asset: your health and vitality. This program benefits all ages but is particularly important for folks at mid-life (age 50-75). Presented by Paula Koppel, a registered nurse, geriatric nurse practitioner, and founder of Age Well Be Well.
Carolyn Savio, Health and Community Program Coordinator at the Billerica Council on Aging, will introduce Paula and will also share some of the many excellent resources available through the BCOA, our community's primary source for aging services.
This program is brought to you with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
